A gallery of the sculpture that features life like versions of 12 celebrities — including Yeezy, Kim Kardashian West, Taylor Swift, Amber Rose, and Donald Trump — will reportedly be going on tour to be displayed in multiple cities.
But according to experts at the Blum & Poe gallery in Los Angeles, where the exhibit was displayed the day before the rapper’s Saint Pablo tour, the full piece can be sold for up to an estimated $4 million!
The number was floated around among those who attended the private exhibition, which would secure the buyer with naked doppelgangers of the previously named celebs, along with George W. Bush, Rihanna, Anna Wintour, Bill Cosby, Chris Brown, Ray J, and Caitlyn Jenner — and the bedspread they’re all sprawled out on.
The Famous subjects are so lifelike, their chests rise and fall as if they’re breathing! El Lay artist Aaron Axelrod told The New York Times:
“I did the math in my head, and it took $500,000 to a million just to make it. This caught me off guard. It’s one of the coolest pieces I’ve ever seen, which is kind of annoying because it’s Kanye West.”
LOLz, we’re not surprised the art community finds the rapper “annoying.”
Even so, gallery co-founder Tim Blum said the $4 million estimate is “a good ballpark,” noting:
“I have friends who are directors of museums. This is a thing you could see at Lacma, MOCA or the Hammer very easily.”
We mean, who wouldn’t want to marvel at some of pop culture’s biggest icons (and Ray J) up close in all their naked glory!?
Do YOU think Kanye’s Famous sculpture is worth $4 mil?
